Our Vision of Care for Connecticut
Became The Center for Comfort Care and Healing —
the state’s first and only nonprofit, all-private-suite, family focused hospice center.
The Center for Comfort Care and Healing has 12 private suites, a multitude of amenities, and accommodates families to stay overnight. The Center provides patients and their families options for the highest quality care away from home, while supporting their personal needs and respecting their individuality.
The Center’s hospice and palliative-care trained medical directors, physicians and APRNs are available 24/7. In addition to nursing and palliative care, the team provides emotional, spiritual and volunteer support, as well as massage, Reiki, music and a Pet Partner Program.
Some families find comfort and serenity in their private suite with their door closed. Others make every inch of our beautiful Center their home.
Most families need both — precious privacy for quiet times of sharing and sunny open spaces to welcome family and friends, engage with our staff and volunteers, celebrate a birthday, eat a favorite meal or relax in our garden.
Chef Aaron Swart and his kitchen staff often become beloved members of a family because his window is always open for requests, and food is a universal language that nurtures warmth and friendship.
“From the years I have worked in hospice care, I know that the responsibility for a loved one’s care can be emotionally and physically draining. Sometimes patients would rather be in a setting where loved ones can instead focus on spending quality time together,” explained Deborah Ryan MSW, LCSW, ACHP-SW, Chief Clinical Officer of Regional Hospice
